Creadon of IIic Julcr-Aincrlcan Board was decided upon in the dark hour when the Axis powers were a threat to the security of the Western Hemisphere. Its formation was directed by the meeting of Foreign Ministers of the American Republics at Rio tie Janeiro in January 19-12. Military delegations from all the republics met in Washington and on March 30, 1942, set up the Inter- American Defense Board, it has leen in continuous operation ever since, with headquarters here. It. has drawn up a voluminous set of detailed plans for collective defense action.'The plans are sent to each of the governments when com- Jleted. They become binding after lie separate governments adopt hem. The plajis have included such subjects as home defense units, raining in the detection of clandestine radio transmissions, exchange of air information, transit of military aircraft, organization and operation of Irregular forces, supervision of telecommunications, protection of merchant marine, se- curity against sabotagt, production of strategic materials, anti-submarine defense and Inter-America transportation. When the Axis was defeated, the board immeciiately began long- range plans for mutual defense against any other aggressors. The emphasis has been on standardization of army and technical equipment and on uniformity of organization. Late In 10-15 the board began to consider the [natter of reorganization on u permanent basis. Such a reorganization was directed by the Ninth International Conference of American Staler held at Bogota, Colombia, in the spring of 1948. The reorganization was completed last month. The work ol the board is directed by a council of delegates, in which each nation has one vote. The technical work, handled by the staft, is accomplished chiefly by ofur permanent committees, designed along the lines of Ihc Army General Staff. The committees are concerned with (1) plans, (2) intelligence, (3) train- Ing and organization and (4) logistics. Rulers of Ethiopia' claim to trace their descent back to King Solomon.
